While, I was home for the holiday’s from veterinary school I was able to attend a family friends wedding. I’ve been to several weddings in the past but never a beach wedding. Normally all the weddings I’ve been to have been formal and require dressy attire. However due to the location of the reception and ceremony, the wedding had a laid back vibe. To accommodate this ocean look we wore beach casual clothes.
Likewise, this posed a challenge for me to find a beach chic outfit. When I normally go to events at the beach I simply wear a cover up dress or shorts. This wouldn’t work for a wedding. So, I thought of sundresses. Sundresses are normally flowly maxi dresses so they give my body no shape and often shrink me. To avoid this I searched for a playful romper.
I found the perfect one at Boohoo. The off the shoulder cut provided a cute and feminine style. The block and center stripes added a fun pattern in monochrome colors. The bold primary color, yellow was able to contrast with the blue seas and sky. This enabled a chic wedding outfit.
Notably, because it was located at our families beach club I needed to accessorize. So, I choose my Tiffany’s heart earrings and necklace I got for my 16th birthday.
Similarly, I needed to find a pair of shoes that would fit the sandy setting. Due to the sand on the beach I didn’t want to wear my heals. But, I still desired to have something with a platform due to my height. I decided upon my TOMS wedges.
This wedding was special to me because my Dad was presiding over it the ceremony and it was hosted at our beach club in San Clemente. The Shorecliffs Beach Club was open and casual. It is also home to where I learned to surf as a child. The location of the San Clemente Beach Club is by the PCH bike lane where I bike in the morning to coffee when I’m home. Also to reminisce the wedding is a beach away from Doheny State Beach where I learned to surf. I grew up camping on these beaches and enjoyed being home.
